Skullcandy Supreme 50/50

Skullcandy Supreme Sound 50/50

 

Skullcandy has made quite a name for itself in the headphone world, thanks largely to its focus on funky fashion and its aggressive marketing tactics aimed at tweens, teens, and young adults. However, the latest Skullcandy earphones to come down the pipe are perhaps the most adult-oriented we’ve seen from the company. The 50/50 earbuds, come in an array of relatively muted color options, and if you’re after some earphones with a hint of style and plenty of oomph, these aren’t a bad choice.

Design and Controls

Arguably, the design of a typical pair of Skullcandy earphones or headphones is its main draw. I’ll let you be the judge of the 50/50’s cool factor, but its skull logo, which is emblazoned on each earpiece, will surely appeal to some. As should one of the six available color choices: black, white/chrome, red, blue, black/chrome, and green/white. The iPhone/iPod controls are built into the right ear’s portion of the 51-inch cable, and there’s a Skullcandy logo at the Y-cable junction.

Verdict

The Skullcandy 50/50 certainly look the part, and the comfy design, complete with differently sized ear pieces for you to choose from is also a bonus. Although they block out a fair bit of noise, the overall audio is a tad disappointing considering the price tag, but the splendid bass certainly helps to sweeten the pill.
